Hi, I need a little help identifing a fish that i have found myself with, any help anyone can give would be very much appreciated. I moved into a new house that had a fish pond, the agreement with the previous owners was that they would remove the fish so i could remove the pond, we have cats and i didnt want a drowned cat on my hands lol We drained the fish pond 4 times over 2 months, the rain kept re filling it, i finally removed it and in the muddy water in the bottom after removing the liner we found a small fish, still alive, i put him in a bucket to start with and he was still full of life, we got him a small tank first of all as we didnt know what we would do with him, due to his ordeal we named him Lucky, which i thought was quite fitting as most fish die shortly after bringing them home and he survived all this, due to this i have built quite a respect for his battle for life, We have just bought him a new 65 liter tank which is much bigger than his original 20 ltr one as we now are going to keep him. I just want to know what type of fish he is, doesnt look like an ordinary goldfish.

Spooky! It's Howie's long lost cousin! Seriously though, Miss P is right, that there is a common goldfish Ideally it needs to be in a pond as it will get big (it looks quite big now?) or else a very large tank, 4 foot minimum Are you able to contact the previous owners and see what they did with the other fish?
